A different culture with different music style, but with the same love to this beautiful instrument. 

Here are some youtube videos of bolivian players playing the english concertina:

I see some of them put two fingers in the finger rests.


It seems uncomfortable to me, but I suppose you could get used to it. Only two fingers left to do all the work, though.


Perhaps they are playing in C and don’t need the outer rows of buttons.

Yes, in the bolivian folk you usually play 2 notes at same time, so obviously they only need 2 fingers. I used to play with 2 as well but now I’m getting used to play 3 since that is the correct way of fingering.
